Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help.

It's sometimes a bad sign that you even get an interview. If enough evidence is sent in, they often don't ask for an interview at all. What types of evidences did you send in? What questions did they ask that you answered incorrectly or poorly? Did they separate you and your spouse?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
no they did not separate us. The adjustment of status was poorly filed because we just did it with no help. However they sent an RFE...we use a lawyer but they were not good enough as they gave the case to their assistant who could not do anything. When we got the interview, i read many online reviews and this time took all evidence since we were married to now. We have been to 3 states because of my work. We had tax transcripts 2 car titles , 4 leases,phone bills,medical insurance,life insurance,car insurance and bank statements all spanning 4 years.The lady didnt even look at them she said she will review later and showed me that i have a large file she has to go through every thing
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
She was rude for the most part and since i did not expect questions about my previous marriage i did not remember details like when we separated , how long i had known him etc and i think i gave short answers too which seemed to annoy her

So a few of those things from every 2 or 3 months? And you and your spouse moved together each time to the different states, no living apart?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
on our RFE i said i had been to denver for a convention (my current husband lived there but we had not started dating) however after grilling me about the timeline of our affair she asked when i was in denver..i thought she asked if i had ever lived in denver so i said i had never been there. I was there for the convention and can prove it but what i said is defferent than what i wrote..again i was already deazed by

we lived together in Houston but i got a job in California while he worked in houston. He quite and joined me 7 months later. We moved together to sc this year. Again because of my job but he did not get a job in California so we moved together. In that time he also traveled to africa for 3 months. IO asked why i did not go with him to africa and i said i was working. They asked him why he came to california and he said he thought i would be made permanent at my job so he joined me. We had told her that the plan was never to stay in california because i stayed in a hotel for 9 months before we got a lease

Sorry for the delay in responding. I had a number of customers that I was helping at the same time and a customer requested a phone call. Anyway, the good news is that I think eventually you will get the conditions removed. Just continue to put away more and more evidence in a folder every month like those insurance statements, bank statements, even junk mail. Go get the stamp renewed as it should be approve because the I-751 is still pending. The bad news is that it may take a bit of time for the officer to review the case. I don't doubt that they were in a bad mood because now she has to go through the additional work of calling potential witnesses (like landlords), employers, verifying addresses, etc. You may have to respond to another Request For Evidence (RFE) or maybe even go for another interview, but as long as you can prove everything and continue to gather more and more evidence every month, you should be ok.
